We are pleased to announce a new highlight in the Darien Library collection: passes to the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan!
The Library has seven of these passes available as part of a kit for visiting MoMA—the kit also includes some tips and tricks for making the most of your visit, a MoMA guidebook, a Metro-North train schedule and driving directions, and other tidbits. Each pass admits five people over the age of 16—those under 16 always visit MoMA free. So you can plan to take a big group with you!
The passes circulate for one week, in periods that run from Tuesday to the following Monday. For example, the first borrowing period will be between Tuesday, September 24 and Monday, September 30. Rather than placing them on hold like a book, you will reserve them for a specific week, which should make it easier to plan your visit. Passes can be reserved in person at the Welcome Desk, or over the phone (203-669-5239). We are currently accepting reservations through the end of 2013! At this time, passes can only be reserved by residents, members who work in Darien, and Friends of the Library at the $300 annual level or above.
These passes are part of a larger collaboration between Darien Library and MoMA. We also encourage you to check out our newly supplemented MoMA book collection, and keep an eye out for some great programs later this fall. We will also be announcing a new space for artists to work in the Library, and Art Tablets with art ebooks and art apps. Questions or ideas? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
